Scaling Drone Inspections with High-Quality Data, Computer Vision, and AI
Many industries have already adopted drones for inspections to save manpower, time, and money. But what’s next? Paul Christianson, CloudFactory’s VP of Strategic Industries, sat down with a panel of drone tech pioneers from BVLOS connectivity leader Elsight, drone analytics experts DroneDeploy, and leading drone manufacturer Skydio. The panelists discussed how building a scalable, efficient data pipeline provides reliable, actionable intelligence for drone inspection companies. They also covered the most likely areas where computer vision and AI will shape the future of drone inspection and the role high-quality data will play.
Watch a replay of the webinar to discover:
- Fascinating examples of how aerial data is enhancing drone inspections.
- How drones use connectivity solutions to continually capture data even when navigating complex networks and operating BVLOS.
- How using data from multiple drone sensors and cameras gives your drone inspection team a wider range of insights.
- Why scaling drone inspection operations is easier when you get data pipeline management right.
- Why the industry is buckling up for the changes computer vision and AI will bring to drone inspections in 2022 and beyond.
